Ryu ga Gotoku Studio, the team behind the Yakuza series, unveiled its brand new game called Judge Eyes during a pre-Tokyo Game Show event.
Judge Eyes (or Project Judge as it will be known in the West) is a narrative-driven action-adventure that sees players investigating a string of murders as a lawyer. Watch the announcement trailer below:
The developer also released a debut gameplay trailer that shows the lead character locating a suspect, trailing him, and finally chasing him down using quick-time events. As you can see from the footage, the battle system is very reminiscent of Yakuza, but with a few tweaks, such as being able to launch off walls and objects.
The game is scheduled to launch in Japan on December 13th, with a Western release set for sometime during 2019. A demo is available to download right now from the Japanese PlayStation Store.
